Do you use the video feature on HubPages?
If so, what has your experience been like?
Yes. It uploads much quicker than YouTube, but it beats down the file quite a bit.
I put up some rudimentary animation, and on my set up it gets stuck a bit here and there. If you let it play through first, like you do on a slow connection with YouTube, it just starts over with the streaming and runs the same.
When I put one of my silly animations up, I accidently uploaded an old version. I can't figure out how to swap it for a newer one. I posted a how to question, but it is very lonely. No one has responded, yet.
Personally, I like the idea, and think the management was wise to open up the option. I am working with some young folks in their production company and plan on doing a short documentary on some successful, creative business models as a trailer for a project. The possibilities are endless.
I know some writers balk at the feature, but writing for "film" is a valid venue and has been for many years. Even if you don't use a script, it is still the same thought process.
No, I came to hubpages to write, so I don't see the point... I know it probably is the "future" and so and so forth , but for me it makes no sense, because what I like to do is to write...
I have used it in the past but not for my own videos. It can be a problem if videos are removed by their makers, so I now only use them when I think they'll really enhance my writing. For me, keeping it simple is better.
Call me an old fuddy-duddy, but with the exception of a couple of YouTube vids 100% relevant to the subject of the hub, I don't see the point of adding videos to hubs. Or even worse, calling a hub that contains only a self-produced video a "hub". Hubpages, after all, was established as a WRITERS' site - and a unique one at that! - not a wannabe imitation of YouTube.
IMHO, if a hubber can't convey his/her thoughts, research, opinion, etc. through the written word and perhaps a few well-chosen photos or images, then maybe that person should find another venue. ;D
Haven't really used it till now.
I'm new to HubPages so still learning.
I checked out the learning center about it...I myself am interested in using videos for my future hubs.
I have not felt the need used it yet. I focus on writing and pictures with my hubs.
